This is great! So simple to do, with stuff you already have on hand! If you keep your ice cream maker in the freezer like I do you can have this in like 20 mins.!!! I did this with my toddler and he loved making his own ice cream. I love that it is healthier than traditional ice cream, and just as yummy! I followed the directions exactly and found it to be sweet enough for sure. I may even reduce the sugar a bit next time. I can't wait to do this again....thanks for posting!

I made this last night with fat-free milk and vanilla bean paste. It was fantastic! I couldn't believe how light and fluffy it became! Definitely a keeper recipe for us. :-)

I saw this intriguing recipe during Spring PAC 2010 & had to make it as it looked too ingredient-friendly & easy to do otherwise. Made exactly as written for those w/no ice cream freezer, I thot the sweetness was spot on. I somehow missed the word *shallow* & froze it in a plastic ice cream tub I had saved for storage, so my freeze time was longer. W/no ice cream freezer, the texture is more crystalline than creamy & I wonder if using an immersion blender on the nearly frozen mixture might chg that to some degree. Using half milk & half vanilla-flavored yogurt may be another option. Next I think I will indulge my creative nature by making 2 half recipes ~ use half yogurt in 1 & whiz banana into the other. Adding nuts, choc chips or marbling w/a thick fudge sauce are options, but they prob should be folded into the nearly frozen mixture so they incorporate well & do not settle to the bottom. Thx for posting this recipe for us & for some fun dys spent in my kitchen as I get creative. :-)

Wonderful Ice Milk Recipe. I had never made ice cream before and this turned out perfectly in my new Donvier maker. It only took 20 minutes with a prefrozen container. It was not runny at all. Thank you so much for sharing.

When I first tasted the milk and sugar mixture, it was waaayy too sweet. I ended up having to add more milk, but the final frozen product was delish. I made it chocolate and it dissapeered within 3 days! Thanks for the recipe! I'll make igain for sure!!!

I halved the recipe, kept the vanilla volume the same and used a bit less than half the sugar. Fantastic! I ate some instead of ice-cream and added some to a whiskey-coke. Awesome in both ways. I'm going to try it in some iced coffee, cocktails and milkshakes as well as attempt flavoured versions. Thanks for posting!

Hi, I am actually in the middle of process of making the ice cream. I already put it the ice cream maker for 30 minutes, the mixture hasn't thicken yet. Why is this happening?

So easy! I added some smushed Cordials chocolate covered cherries. Mine was a little too soft so I put in the freezer... I also used 1/2 and 1/2
